  • As I mentioned in the review I opened an issue with Netgear about the key that is required for the TV Guide. I just got a note in my email saying that the issue was closed without a resolution. There was no other information, I would have preferred if they had come back and said we cannot find an answer, but instead they just closed the issue. If this is any indication of their normal service then I would avoid Netgear products.

    I see on the Netgear website that they have released firmware that is newer than what was displayed in the screenshot you posted. I would like to know if you have tried the newer firmware, and if so, did it resolve some of the issues you oberved while evaluating the player.

    Is the DVD folder issue sorted out? Can you skip songs while viewing photos?

    It sounds like a pain to start a new scan every time a new file is downloaded to the host computer. Is this process improved at all with the new version?

  • Thank you for the question. I probably should have mentioned that during the review period I had upgraded to the 1.2.20 version of firmware, but I forgot to update the screenshot.

    The problems I mentioned in the review were all present with the latest firmware. If they come out with a new version they may be able to solve the problems, but I no longer have an EVA8000 so I will not be able to test it.

    I have recently bought a Netgear EVA8000 and wish to connect wirelessly to a Maxtor Shared Storage Device (MSSII) which is plugged into my router. I can ping all devices and have connection to the internet. I am unable to do this. Does anyone know how to do this.
